    You are neutralizing it, by having ESET blocking it. It's a random IP range scan by some bot looking for vulnerable computers. Since you are protected behind a firewall, which is doing its job and blocking it, you don't have to worry at all. These port scans are supremely common and you are most likely not personally targetted; you just happen to be in the IP range currently attacked. It doesnt affect you at all.

    Get a router if you want these types of scans to never reach your computer at all.

    If I checked my firewall logs over the years for these type of scan messages and added them up, it'd fill a book.
